  1. 2009 G6ET, put a Derale 7000 Oil/Trans Cooler Kit x Large #13205 which is a 10 pass derale 1/2 inch cooler behind the intercooler after moving lower rad mounts back about 10-15mm. 1/2" hosing with 1/2" fittings into side of trans. Its a big cooler and gets to about 58-60 degrees max on the pan, shifts fine and cant fault it. Have fitted same one to 2 BAs BTRs with no issues either, spacing lower rad mounts back each time.
  2. I don't use Fb, twitter or any other site like that and never will. Sites such as this and FF have a library of information for car nuts who wish to perform their own maintenance and enquire about mods, parts interchangeability between models etc that in my opinion, is of great value and it would be a shame to lose access to that information should the site become unsustainable. As such, I have no problem with "thread mines" or whatever else some wish to call the renewing of historical information for whilst it may be old information to some, for others just getting into these cars it will all
  3. Yep, detectors are legal, po po use KA band, pole mounted and MOBILE speed cameras use K band, X Band isnt used at all so with an STI or similar have only KA and Laser on to avoid falsing, I turn on K band only when travelling between cities, not around home base as such. Go on trademe and pick up an STI for $350 odd, they're a good unit, get the amplified speaker too if you can to hear it over the radio etc and hardwire in. Don't leave it low on the screen with a curly cord advertising its presence when parked unattended as the thieving f--ks will have it quick as a flash and o
  4. Hmmm BA ghia blows cold passengers side only, figured the ole broken rod so pulled seats, column, dash etc and rods are fine, so are he doors in the heater unit. Friendly Ford chap suggested the HIM would have a dodgy mototr so opened the HIM, tested the motors (12v) and they are all good, so took the HIM to local wreckers, plugged it into a Fairlane ghia, powered it up and the HIM responded to all inputs from the ICC controls.... this ruled out the HIM as the problem. Rang Ford again and service manager mentioned one of the guys (who was away that day) has a way of resetting the units wh
  5. Can anyone shed some light on this issue, I've pm'd Gazza to se if he had sorted it on his car but didn't get a reply. Have just got the pcm back and from start car idled at 1500 (maybe resetting the itself?) test drive and it is still the same, seems to be even more prone to this flaring boost on gradual throttle application, wot from 2000 rpm sees the boost climb clean to 8 then on to 15+ as the revs/sped increases. On the new inlet piping I've got the blow off valve in front of the map sensor by 300-400mm, so the map is between the bov and throttle body. Could this be having any effect? Als
  6. Sorry to drag up an old thread but I've got similar issues and am keen to hear what the cause of all this was, can someone please shed some light on this? Thanks.
  7. Just an update, dunno whats causing this still as with just the 7lb spring in the actuator, at wot from 2000 rpm in 3rd gear manual mode (4sp btr) it goes up to 8, then 10 and climbs up to 15 creeping to 16 at 5000-5200 rpm. It pulls cleanly in that scenario but when in D and giving it slow but steady throttle it does the boostcut dance on the guage, up/down repeatedly and in quick succession. This happens with actuator plumbed both direct from turbo and/or going through solenoid which is disabled anyway so no surprise there. Will be sending pcm back to tuner for tweaking to see if we can get
  8. Hey bomber, gave that a go, blocked bov pipe with 1" bit of broom handle and plugged the vacuum line but after a few go's on it it's the same thing just a lot of flutter with bov blocked off. Took turbo off and was hardly open at 10lb from airline, about 30degrees at 15 psi. Rod from actuator wasn't lined up with pin on flapper arm properly either putting a sideways load on the rod that wouldn't be helping it move to freely I'd have though. Realigned snail to bring the rod inline with the pin. Have taken the 5lb spring out of the actuator leaving the 7lb in there and now on 10psi its open as
  9. Hey Gazza, I've been searching for past posts on what I think might be the same issue and found yours to be the closest to what I'm getting the pip with. Any update on what this was being caused by? I'm down in Hawkes Bay and have just had a tune done on similar mods on 03 ute using 36mm flapper on new housing, 42lb injectors, 450x400x75mm cooler, 2.5 inch hot and cold side with cold side going under passengers headlight with factory bov mounted there feeding back behind rad support panel into 3" intake where battery was with K&N in a box, map sensor located on pipe between bov and throttl
  10. Had lake pipes (tats what theyre called here) on an AU2 xr8 manual ute and later on a BA2 xr8 manual ute. The AU wasnt as bad for bottoming out as the BA (heavier motor maybe? was mounted slightly differently at headers)but it became a case of negotiating speed humps etc slowly and or crossing on an angle. Theyre legal here as long as they exit behind the rear most door , so on a ute that's pretty easy to do if its near the wheel . The internal pipes were 2 1/4 inch perforated tube wrapped in exhaust packing the full lenght of the muffler, (nothing in the chrome ends) slid inside a 3 inch oute
  11. Hi, thanks for that info, subject to how much the frieght will be, I'm keen on buying them off you. Can you please come back to me with a total price including frieght, with rotors and without and a contact phone number would be good that way we can talk directlt instead of chasing messages.
